Still Got the Touch

I said on the most recent episode of Geek Out Loud that Transformers: The Movie was one of those childhood defining movies with a soundtrack that, for this child of the eighties, still holds up today. I’m not a fan of messing with what works. I don’t like Code Red Mountain Dew…or any other of these Mountain Dew flavors. My thought process is, it’s perfect…don’t mess with it.

When Stan Bush told me that he was retooling “The Touch” to give it a more modern sound, I was excited, but I had that niggling in the back of my mind…what if it sucks?

Well, Stan has released the new version to the masses via YouTube, and I have to say, I’m liking it. The original version of the “The Touch” will always be my version, but I have to say, this one has grown on me rather quickly.

The next step is to somehow get Michael Bay to sit up and recognize that HE NEEDS THE TOUCH! HE NEEDS THIS SOOOOOONG! ahem…yeah..he needs the “The Touch” in his Transformers movie.

Here is a retooling of the video:

    While this is cool… it will never beat the original. It’s still one of the best soundtracks out there.

    That was…different.

    Not bad. It will take some getting used to and I never thought I would hear hip hop in THE TOUCH, but as far as re-tools go it was pretty good.
